December 7th -- Sunset of the Greatest Generation

As the years roll by, we are rapidly losing direct links to the Greatest Generation – those grandparents and great grandparents who bore the burden of the Great Depression and the horrors of World War II. Tempered by adversity and the need for self-sacrifice, men and women of that era overcame every sort of obstacle with an infectious Can-Do attitude that was carefully nurtured and transferred to their descendants.

December 7th 1941 marks the start of America’s all-in involvement in winning the war, yet America provided vitally needed materials and supplies to Britain years earlier, via the courage and tenacity of its merchant maritime industry.

Spearheaded by historian and author, Stephen Ambrose, New Orleans is the host city of the National World War II Museum. First constructed and opened to the public in Year 2000, the Museum pays tribute to the European and Pacific war theatres while highlighting the many innovations in technology and materiel contributed by those men and women on the home front. If you have not visited this special place, add it to your more immediate bucket list!

The freedoms and opportunity we enjoy today can be traced back to those most difficult years: 1941 through 1945. Innovations in electronics technology and others provided the foundation for the nation’s exponential growth seen in communications, computer technology, transportation, space exploration and far more. Such work was born out of urgent necessity, while the survival of the free world hung in the balance. So, why not take a moment to reflect on those from that Greatest Generation who won our many freedoms and played a direct role in your life, education, and psyche? Their spirit is an important part of you!
